The microscopic plankton in the Bioluminescent Bay of Fajardo light up when they are touched! Pure magic, the experience is nearly indescribable.
We kayaked into the ocean waves at night into a bay surrounded by mangroves. As we neared the bay, the water surrounding our paddles began to glow.
By the time we reached the bay, we could see glow trails from large fish, small fish, schools of fish, and fish jumping into the water.
Las Croabas Lagoon in Fajardo has 500,000 to 700,000 of bioluminescent dinoflagellates (a plankton) per gallon, so when you wave your hand through the water you trigger so many of them that your hand lights up with a thousand tiny stars.
It was an exhilarating experience and i am amazed at how many little details God made for us to enjoy!
